And you don’t have to, you don’t have to agree with them on things, but they’re his people, your people. , our people, that’s what you’re supposed to do,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said after playing several clips of DeSantis, noting the help he received from the Biden administration.

Behar on Tuesday criticized Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Arizona, for speaking out at an event with Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on bipartisanship.

After stating that Sinema was very unpopular among different groups in Arizona, she said she would not be popular with Republicans either.

“She’s not going to be popular with Republicans either. Because she doesn’t have a religion, so that’s, as far as I know, and she says she’s bisexual, they don’t like that , so I think she has a problem, she’s not helping Democrats. We don’t need her. We need a strong Democrat in Arizona like Mark Kelly,” Behar said.
